I'm finally traveling to San Fran this September, one of the last of the major US cities I have not visited, and I'm looking for a nice hotel. I won't have a car so good walking/public transport options. Luxury appreciated but it doesn't have to be 5 star, just upper level. The most important thing, a view. I really want to be able to look out in awe at the beauty of the city or the bay. Budget is pretty flexible. My current hotel programs with status are Marriott, Hilton and Kimpton. Wouldn't mind getting some points with this stay but it's not a deal breaker if not. I've looked at the St. Regis, Intercontinental, Ritz, etc and I just can't decide. It's so much easier to choose a hotel in a city that doesn't have so many wonderful properties Thanks in advance!
